Lego League pictures are up! Thanks for your patience!
We have our own tab, see it up there? It's called Lego League. Yep. Now click on it.

First check out this super awesome Giant Luigi by Brendon and Grace. They worked so hard on it, and it was really, really tall.
Okay, now go check out the rest of the awesomeness!!!!
P.S. My system of tagging the creations worked great, until it didn't. Please leave a comment if I did not put the right names next to the right creations.

Review: It's the First Day of School...Forever!

It's the First Day of School....FOREVER
By: R.L. Stine
I found it: In the new books section of Youth Services

What is it about? Arnie is starting a new school, and his day starts off really badly. It just gets worse from there!

The real nightmare is that everytime Arnie thinks he has figured out how to survive this horrible day, he wakes up! The entire day has started all over again.
This is a great fall read. It has just enough "back to school" for September, and enough horror for October.
I did not think it was too scary. There is a lot of action in this book! My big fear was that I would get bored reading about the same day over and over again, but the story changed each time.
Recommended for ages: 9-12
